Dr. Katz's Care Philosophy

I have been practicing ophthalmology for over 30 years. My medical approach to medicine is simple. I tell my patients that I do not just treat diseases of the eye, but rather I treat people with diseases of the eye. My patients are well informed. They not only understand their conditions, but are the most important link in the treatment of their eyes. My patients and I work as a team caring for their individual needs.
